BullCharts User Group
 meeting and webinar recordings


Some of the monthly User Group webinar sessions
and some of the User Group presentations are recorded,
and listed here for you to view

Notes about the meeting and webinars and the recordings listed below

About the webinars:
  1. We currently use the GoToMeeting.com facility for the user group webinars (earlier webinars were conducted using AnyMeeting.com). The GoToMeeting facility is a premium service, the use of which for the user group webinars is sponsored by the BullCharts company.
  2. Up-coming webinar dates are listed in the schedule.
  3. The agenda for these webinar meetings basically follows the agenda and discussion from the previous week's face-to-face Melbourne User Group meeting.
  4. Minutes of each face-to-face meeting are published. The latest ones are available from the link in the left column of the User Group details web page. Earlier meeting agenda and minutes documents are available to BullCharts users in the BCUG Google Drive facility.
To view the recordings:
  1. Some of the recordings below are cut from the real sessions, and some are edited from various materials. Some are available to view in YouTube.
  2. You can view the recording of the User Group meeting webinars below. Clicking on the link will open the recording in a standard web browser. 
  3. Some of the recorded sessions were recorded using Camtasia to produce a better quality and more flexible recording.
  4. For the AnyMeeting recordings, the system will prompt for your name and email address - this is purely for admin purposes to prevent robot software from following the links. It might take 30 seconds to a minute to download the initial information and to start playing.
Viewing the AnyMeeting recordings:
  1. Across the bottom of the window there is a "Pause/Play" button, and a slider to jump ahead in the recording.
  2. A number of "bookmarks" or "cue points" are stored for each recording. Each one has a useful label to help you jump to a specific topic.
    NOTE: Click on the slider just below the desired Cue Point.
  3. When viewing the recording, it may pause from time to time to "buffer" more content. This should take only a few seconds.
  4. In the bottom right hand corner of the window there is an indication of elapsed time, and total time, for the recording.
  5. Problem? - If you encounter a glitch and the recording seems to "stick" or "hang", then close the browser window and connect again, and jump to the desired spot in the recording.

Trend metrics - Measuring trend strength

In this user group webinar meeting we set out with the objectives of:

  1. How to identify a rising price trend; and
  2. How to measure the strength of the trend; and
  3. How to utilise a specific trading signal based on trend strength.

See the edited webinar video at YouTube.com (49 mins).

In this video we explored many of the trend-related tools and chart indicators in BullCharts software, and along the way we explored and demonstrated all of the following tips [the numbers in square brackets refer to the minutes and seconds into the video recording to help you find specific items which might one day be edited out into their own short videos]:

  1. TIP: The BullCharts Tooltip can be disabled, or enabled. See menu option: Tools > Preferences > “Show chart tooltips...”. But having it enabled can cause problems if you have a lot of text inside BullCharts Text boxes [see video recording at the 1 minute mark].
  2. TIP: How to change the default values for the appearance of a BullCharts tool. eg. change the straight line segment, or Moving Average indicator, etc., to always be a dotted line and a different colour [at 8 min]
  3. TIP: Use the BullCharts Trend Ruler to show the percentage change over time [at 9.5 mins].
  4. TIP: When inserting an indicator, use the menu option: Insert > Indicator, or use the keyboard shortcut: <Ctrl>+i [from 11 minutes].
  5. TIP: How to more quickly navigate the long list of indicators when adding to the price chart [11min 30sec].
  6. TIP: When inserting an indicator, click on ‘Next’ to change various parameters such as the “Location” of the indicator (eg. on the Price pane, or New pane, etc.) and so on. [12 min]
  7. TIP: “Stack indicators” to literally stack the indicator panes one behind the other [12:40].
  8. TIP: How to find where the BullCharts indicators are stored on your computer, and how to determine which ones are the standard supplied indicators versus the Custom Indicators. It can be useful to know where they are. [17 minutes].
  9. TIP: Use Training Mode (and the Training Mode Toolbar) in BullCharts to cover up the recent price action, and then analysis and ponder the chart. [22:20]
  10. TIP: Add a horizontal line to an indicator (such as the ADX), change the line thickness and colour, and “save as default”. [27 minutes].
  11. Divergence of share price to an indicator. Example shown in the video [35 minutes].
  12. Alan Hull’s HAVROAR and HATROAR indicators (HAVROAR for longer term inVestors and HATROAR for shorter term Traders). [37m40s]
  13. TIP: When looking for an indicator in the long list, you can choose the Author “Category” by scrolling down to the list of authors [past the at 39 minute mark].
  14. Moving Average Oscillator – Shown as a histogram instead of the normal line/curve [42m 40s].
  15. Moving Average Oscillator – Use the indicator properties and the Styles option to change from Histogram to something else (see adjacent screen shot). [45m 20s].
  16. TIP: Note Bearish Divergence, and an example to help clarify. [46 minute]
  17. John demonstrates how to “colour fill” the areas inside the MACD indicator [46+ minute].

Miscellaneous presenters - Your Favourite Indicators - Disparity Index and more

Our BullCharts users tend to use a variety of technical analysis chart indicators to help them with their share price analysis, and to help specify hard selection and entry criteria, as well as exit criteria.

In this session we had a round table discussion focusing on some of the most popular indicators.
David W showed us the Steve Nison (of “Beyond Candlesticks” fame) Disparity Index indicator. It shows a percentage display of the latest close to a chosen moving average. David finds it useful to plot it as an oscillator and to alert to possible entries or stocks that may be over-extended. A value greater than zero – a positive percentage – shows that the price is rising, suggests upward momentum. A value below zero (negative percentage) suggests to stay out.

Other indicators discussed and demonstrated include:

  • Hull MMA
  • Guppy MMA,
  • Momentum and Moving Average of Momentum and
  • RSI.

The video includes other discussion on the latest BullCharts version number, plus several BullCharts tips.

Robert B - Analysing and annotating price charts to record your technical analysis and notes

How do you manage to record the details of your technical analysis of the price charts? Do you draw trend lines and make notes and various annotations directly on the price chart on your computer? Do you end up with too many annotations and a cluttered chart? What about studies in different time frames such as daily and weekly, and what about studies of both the short term and long term? It can get rather messy and awkward.

In this User Group monthly webinar session Robert demonstrates many of the chart tools in BullCharts (eg. lines, measure tools, etc. – see the list below), and several ways to keep on top of the clutter, so as to easily group like with like and only show the related items.  This presentation is an advancement of Robert’s presentation from November 2014. (The slides from Robert's presentations are available to download here.)

The BullCharts features that are introduced include (plus many BullCharts tips):
    • BullCharts Chart Tools (simple)
        ◦ Text Box features (colour and size of text, Border, Fill, “Anchor to Date”)
        ◦ Lines (Interval, Ray, Vertical, Cross-hair, Parallel, Band, etc.)
        ◦ Rectangle, Ellipse, Parabola.
        ◦ Fibonacci tools.
        ◦ Range Info and Compound Candle.
        ◦ Regression tools
        ◦ Measure tools (Time, Value, Percent, Ruler)
        ◦ Alerts
        ◦ Icons
        ◦ plus a few more.
    • Too many Chart Tools have cluttered your chart? How to cope:
        ◦ Turn off IntelliCharts and use menu option: File -- Save.
        ◦ Use IntelliCharts “Save... each time period”
        ◦ Utilise the Layer Manager.
    • Chart Memo feature
    • Watchlist features:
        ◦ Group similar ones in Watchlist Folders.
        ◦ Use Colour
        ◦ Watchlist Comment field
        ◦ Sort the Watchlist.
